MLB: Top 5 Sellers at 2021 Trade Deadline
The 2021 MLB season has been fun to watch. Whether it’s the no-hitters or the all young guns belting homers, this has been highly entertaining. But, there are some teams going through a rough period.
We know teams like the Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox, and Atlanta Braves could be buyers even though they probably won’t go trade for a bunch of guys or acquire well-known talent.
Here are the top-5 sellers as the trade deadline approaches.
Out of all the bottom dwellers in baseball, the Twins might have the most potential trade candidates.
Jose Berrios could net a strong return in a trade also.
It’s hard to believe the Twins are in this position, but they haven’t played very well and Miguel Sano is a .178 hitter, which doesn’t help matters.
The Nats are in fourth place in the NL East and are having another disappointing season.
If a team is desperate enough for some pitching, then Scherzer definitely could be up for grabs.
I wasn’t expecting much from the Nats this season. I mean it’s not like they were going to spend much money after winning a World Series in 2019.
The NL East is starting to sort itself out with the cream rising to the top.
The Fish are in last place in the division and will need to consider some trades.
The D-backs have been in last place in the NL West and it only makes sense for them to trade players.
If teams have to absorb the contracts for all these players, they would not have to worry since their deals are really cheap.
The Buccos are a really bad team, but they have some arms that could be available at the MLB Trade Deadline.
The Buccos were last on this list, because I felt the Nats, Marlins, D-backs, and Twins had better and more appealing big league talent available.
